For your first problem, we just raise wht gpg tells us. If Gajim says
you don't trust the key, it's because gpg says so. Do you trust your own
key? We encrypt to both our key and recipient key so carbon can work

For your second problem, I recently worked with another user on
improving that. And if you install this version [0], it should be fixed:
[0]: https://gajim.org/downloads/snap/win/gajim_0.16.5_gpg7.exe
